I have been trying to print out the finder/locator charts in the VSP, but everytime I print a chart, all I ever get is the border - nothing else. What, if anything, am I doing wrong?

My first guess is your resolution setting is too high. If it is at, say 300dpi, then the chart will be too big for a printer and you'll only get a tiny corner of it. Use a setting of 75dpi. We've found that prints out well on all the printer's we've tested it with. The setting is called "resolution" and is located near the bottom of the VSP user interface. If that doesn't work, let us know and give us more information about the chart you are trying to plot.
